‘Books, immense as their value really is, are over-rated when it is supposed that
they may be made to teach us everything. Many of the items which constitute the
mass of human knowledge have not yet found their way into books, but remain still
loose and ungathered among the habits and daily transactions of society.”

from The Pursuit of Knowledge under Difficulties
The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge 1831
